First, my apology to BKLAUSMEYER. I thought the smile/frown thing was for the product, not your comment.

Second, when I tried to download the BIdNobble product just now, I got "Not Found." Apparently, it is kaput and should be removed from MacUpdate.

I used a previous version with success.

With the latest version I can't find an application, no instructions, nothing, on how to set up the program, or what to do to get it to open. There's no contact info either, and the website doesn't offer any further help, so I don't know what to do or where to go...I guess I can't use it anymore...

Too bad, I liked it.

Useless. On-line help says to pase an auction URL into the Address field. I do and get nothing but errors. Cannot use becuase I cannot see an auction with the program.

After reading some of the comments posted here I was hesitant to try this on the auctions I was currently watching. But it worked like a charm! Nailed my last bid with 2 seconds and $0.06 to spare.

Sure the GUI could use some work and polish, and it would be great if the developer used WebKit or something (anything) that renders correctly for the builtin browser component, but otherwise this was a very functional and effective piece of kit.

Thank you so much!

Piece of crap. Won 1 auction, lost 3 due to this thing not seeming to know that £6 is LESS than £15. Use something else until this works.

There dont' seem to be a lot of ebay snipe applications for Mac. And this one has a lot of potential - it's both small and simple - but for the whole control/right click problem previously mentioned. Neither a control/right click will pop up the "Open Bid Dialog." Since there is no other way to pop up the "Open Bid Dialog," the beta is basically useless. For a future release, how about putting an "Open Bid" item under the file menu?

Can't wait to give this a run when I can actually test drive the snipe option.

Hi..i don't get it...it says for mac osx but won't work with the apple mouse. Cannot get that menu to enter a snipe bid to show up. Tried click..option, command, control, and even together and combinations with nothing popping up.
